    You gotta have openSSH installed from the installer. I had the same problem just now, only it was extra weird seeing as i'd already used WinSCP without having SSH installed....oh well, it fixed the problem anyways

    need wifi to access winscp..?!

    heya all..

    this might sound like a stupid Q.. but erm.. i tried connecting my touch to my lappie via winscp but it doesnt seem to be able to connect after inputting the info needed.. BUT.. once i connected my touch to wifi and repeated the procedure, its able to detect it flawlessly! which leaves me to ask, i should have my wifi connected to a network before im able to access winscp huh?! replies greatly appreciated

    Hey, just so everyone's clear on this, I'm no pro or anything, but SSH is a way to access your iPod wirelessly, so you MUST have wifi AND openssh on your iPod activated for it to work. You don't even have to have it connected physically to the computer. Hope that sets some things straight.

    Hey, so not sure if it's just me but i've tried both passwords (alpine/dottie) but i keep getting "Access Denied". Kinda strange, considering it was working up to an hour ago? I'll restart and try tomrrow i guess.
